Wow, it seems like a dream come true, not exactly and not for everyone, but being able to check whether or not statements made by politicians were correct is surely a good news. Eric Schmidt of Google, believes this strongly that with in next five years Internet is capable of offering this facility, it is the sort of service Google Inc. under the name of GOOG.O: Quote, Profile, Research.
Still today the on-line world remains to be unappreciated by politicians, who don't realize its caliber and have no good knowledge of it.
Politicians have yet to appreciate the impact of the online world, which will also affect the outcome of elections, Schmidt said in an interview with the Financial Times published on Wednesday. According to him the "truth predictor" software would, within five years, "hold politicians to account." People would be able to use programs to check seemingly factual statements against historical data to see to see if they were correct.
"One of my messages to them (politicians) is to think about having every one of your voters on-line all the time, then inputting 'is this true or false.' We (at Google) are not in charge of truth but we might be able to give a probability," he told the newspaper. Well this facility not be able to make 'world a better place to live' but will surely make politics a 'honest game'.
